Children's hand surgery

About

Our children’s hand surgery service at St Mary’s Hospital provides a multidisciplinary team approach for children with hand problems and their families.

Using both surgical and non-surgical interventions, the team treat a range of conditions, including extra fingers or thumbs (polydactyly), fused fingers (syndactyly) or missing digits. Foot congenital problems can also be managed along the same lines.

All treatment options from splinting to surgery are considered, we treat each case uniquely and involve families and the child in each step of the process.

Our aim is to help guide families through the entire treatment process, providing support and expert help to ensure our patients can achieve their full potential.

Our team is made up of internationally trained surgeons, therapists and paediatricians to manage all aspects of a child with hand differences.
